Report on Lessons Learned from COVID – 19
BlackRock published a new ViewPoint report on “Lessons Learned from COVID – 19: Market Structure Underlies Interconnectedness of the Financial Market Ecosystem”, which highlights the key role that market structure plays in a highly connected ecosystem. The COVID – 19 pandemic fundamentally tested the resilience of the global capital markets ecosystem in March 2020. In order to comprehensively assess the market dynamics during the volatility, we need to understand how the various elements of the ecosystem relate to each other and how market structure impacts the system overall. As part of this review, it is important to explore how evolving regulations and market participants in one area of the ecosystem impact asset owners and other market participants. The report also provides recommendations to improve markets structure resilience.
